Mesa residents to celebrate freedom early with pre-Fourth of July bash

June 15, 2013 by  

The streets of downtown Mesa will once again be bursting with patriotic fervor well before the arrival of Independence Day. For the fourth year in a row, area residents will be gathering to take part in the arizona Celebration of Freedom. The organizers of this event are almost certainly seeking the expertise of a print company as they design red, white, and blue banners and posters for the occasion.

The celebration will offer activities for attendees of all ages. It will feature food, live music, a showcasing of classic cars and motorcycles, and an art walk. Children will enjoy games and carnival rides, while adults will have a chance to sample drinks and snacks at several beer gardens.

A must-see at the festival will be the ‘Heritage Lane’ exhibit, which will consist of inflatable versions of some of America’s most well-known national monuments. There will also be a Fallen Heroes Memorial and a walk to honor veterans.

As darkness falls, attendees will watch a ‘Salute to America’ presentation that will include renditions of several of the nation’s most beloved songs. The evening will end with a traditional fireworks show.

The Arizona Celebration of Freedom will take place on Saturday, June 29. It is set to begin at 6:00 pm and will conclude at approximately 11:00 pm. Admission will be free.

The festivities will be set up in the area between Main Street and First Street, running east and west from Centennial Way to Center Street. Those in need of directions or other details should call (480) 644-2069.
